Te Tauoma Stage 1A builds on the design concept of the full Te Tauoma site which is developed upon several key drivers including;
- Create a series of residential towers in a parklike setting to provide for a quality urban environment.
- Deliver density through height to minimise building footprints and maximise open space within the development.
- Deliver significant housing supply for families to make the most of the site’s location, being in close proximity to public transport, town center, education and employment areas.
- Prioritise and extend the highly connected network of walking, cycling throughout the site together with convenient links to public transport.
Te Tauoma Stage 1A extends for approximately 1.5-hectares, and it includes three residential buildings, fronting Morrin Road, and one parking/commercial building to the southwest of the masterplan perimeter. The development will host 216 apartments, 20 commercial/retails tenancies and a range of communal and recreational amenities within the site such as playgrounds, gardens, and a fitness trail.
The project integrates the Te Aranga Design Principles, cultural narratives and values of Mana Whenua, into the design and design process in a respectful and sensitive way.
